Logan's Close were formed by founding members Scott Rough, Carl Marah and Michael Reilly. The three lads all came from Dunbar,
East Lothian and were childhood friends. In their teens they discovered they each shared a love of 60s music and would regularly get together to listen to records whilst becoming intoxicated. After some time the trio began to wish that there were a band of
that style on the Edinburgh scene they could go see - but the current music scene in Edinburgh had nothing readily available of that sort. It was this realisation that spawned the band: the three lads could be said band.
